Natalie Portman has confirmed she is currently working on a few directorial projects.

The 32-year-old Oscar-winning actress previously told Vogue she was aiming to direct comedies under her Handsomecharlie Films banner.

But during a Thor: The Dark World screening in New York Wednesday night, Natalie revealed she is focusing on nonfiction films.

“We have a couple of documentaries going right now, one of which is Eating Animals, which I’m really excited about, the documentary adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s book,” she told The Hollywood Reporter during the event hosted by Cinema Society and Dior Beauty.

Natalie continued to heap praise on her Thor castmate Chris Hemsworth during the chat.

She claimed they had so much fun working together she developed a “giggling problem” on set.

“Chris is just everything you could want in an actor,” she gushed.

“He’s so good, talented, professional, kind, down to earth, just naturally charismatic … He’s wonderful to be around; there’s an innate goodness in him that really ennobles the superhero character that he plays.”

As a director, Natalie is currently attached to political drama A Tale of Love and Darkness, which is due for release in 2014. According to IMDb, the film is “based on the memoir of Amos Oz, a writer, journalist, and advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

Natalie stars in three major films in 2014, including Knight of Cups, Jane Got a Gun, and Untitled Terrence Malick Project.
